This tile is from a known series which comprises large tiles with the full inscription divided between them, together with a group of smaller tiles, each of which has a floral centre and the inscription around the sides. Four others of the group of larger tiles apart from the present example survive. Two; the second and third from the original series, are in a private collection (Treasures of Islam, exhibition catalogue, Geneva, 1985, no.239, p.237), while two more, the fifth and sixth from the original series, are in the Victoria and Albert Museum (Lentz, Thomas W. and Lowry, Glenn D.: Timur and the Princely Vision, exhibition catalogue, Los Angeles, 1989, no.113A, pp.213 and 352). The full inscription reads: "This building was built at the order of the Sultan, the Greatest, Abu'l Muzaffar Sultan Abu Sa'id Bahadur Khan, may God perpetuate his kingship, by Nusrat al-Din Muhammad in the year 860". The present tile has the final part of the name of the artist and the start of the date.
